About The Lygon Arms Hotel - The Terrace
Indulge & celebrate with a selection of seasonally themed afternoon teas throughout the year in the Lygon Terrace. Alternatively, The Chase Afternoon Tea is our premium option, using one of this country's most prestigious home grown vodkas. Featuring miniature cocktails & cakes, it's the perfect pairing for your memories and moments spent in the Cotswolds.
Our Lygon Terrace by night serves our Bar & Grill menu.
The grill offers a seasonal British menu that celebrates fantastic local ingredients in a relaxed yet imaginative way. The highest-quality produce is at the heart of all dishes, and has stemmed from friendly and sustainable relationships with Cotswolds suppliers, farmers and artisans to produce a varied menu for everyone.
A great place for a special family occasion!
Great food, friendly staff
Service: would have been 5* based on the staff in the tea-room itself who were unfailingly charming and helpful. Unfortunately, the first person we met on our arrival in the hotel entrance was haughty and almost dismissive as we showed him our Afternoon Tea voucher (which had been given to us as a gift) - he waved us in the general direction of the rear of the hotel and made us feel as if we had no real right to be there! Very disappointing and off-putting, but fortunately the hotel's reputation was rescued by those who served us thereafter.
Very pleasant afternoon tea on our 42nd Wedding Anniversary. Service was excellent though the 12.5% service charge on the bill is an unpleasant London habit. FWIW I usually give 15% or more when happy, but never give extra to restaurants that do this. Sandwiches were great - one smoked salmon, one ham, one cucumber each. One fruit scone each (no option for plain scone which my wife would preferred). Cakes / sweets interesting - We both really liked the rhubarb. Choice of tea was interesting and appreciated. Being old and old fashioned the waiting staff wearing blue jeans did not seem to add to the atmosphere - but a minor point in the overall scheme of things.
Pretty disappointing & very overpriced. I booked for the Rich Veuve Clicquot afternoon tea as advertised all along the outside of the hotel. Staff seemed completely unaware of it. Food arrived eventually but it took a long time to get something to drink. The food was very average. We were celebrating a special birthday but this was anything but special. We won’t be back.
Service is good, however there are a few points that could be improved upon. When laying up for breakfast, later on in dinner service, it would be nice to see staff with a tray of cutlery, instead of walking around with a fist full of spoons. Junior staff seem to bring out the food when ready, its important again to ensure that when presenting a dish such as beef wellington that there is adequate serving cutlery to take this from platter to plate. I had to stab mine with my fork and it fell apart on transfer to my plate. Breakfast was a bit of a nightmare, our drink and toast was forgotten, easily done during busy service. The walk to the buffet a bit of a way from the back of the restaurant. Also, maybe the offer of other coffees as the main brew served was rather weak and watery. On the whole the team work well together, just a little fine tuning would bring the standards up to 5 star.
Food and service 5 star! Great environment, service was spot on, dog welcoming which is always a bonus. Food delicious, cocktails just as good.
Wonderful short break venue which met all our expectations.
Lovely but very expensive
It was my first visit to the Lygon Arms Hotel for afternoon tea, but it will not be my last.
Better range of sandwich choice ot a savoury option .
A real treat.
Fantastic service, friendly staff who were incredibly accommodating and happy to have a chat. We had the afternoon tea which was delicious and beautifully presented. I’ll definately be booking to come back.
Superb evening, excellent food, attentive service, we really enjoyed it and will definitely return.
The afternoon tea was amazing, especially because I'm lactose intolerant and the fairy free options were great!!
Very nice afternoon tea. The gluten free option was very good. Staff were execellent. Please pass on our thanks
Our visit to The Lygon Arms was to celebrate a joint silver and golden wedding anniversaries. We had a fantastic experience from the time we arrived to the moment we left. Would highly recommend the hotel to others.
Very friendly service and a lovely ambience - a great place for afternoon tea.
We had the afternoon tea for 5 of us. Firstly the tea arrived that was so pale we had to ask for more tea bags. The food arrived and was adequate. One of the sandwiches had no filling. Atmosphere was great. Lovely setting in such an old building. Took a while to catch anyone working to ask for more tea or to get the bill. To be honest we all felt it was over priced for what we received compared to other places that we have visited.
Very enjoyable afternoon tea and fully met expectations. The young service team were obliging, friendly and efficient. Having lived in Switzerland where service is unrivalled is the reason for 4, not 5 stars. A thoughtful touch by the Lygon team was to offer our hot drinks after we had finished cold ones we had selected. However, forgetting to then bring the hot drinks until reminded undermined what was clearly intended as a nice act of individual attention. That would never happen in our experience of Swiss hospitality - our table would have been discreetly monitored to ensure the hot drinks followed the moment the cold ones were finished. Study the hotels in Switzerland (not just the 5 super luxury ones), copy shamelessly and the Lygon will be unbeatable!
Excellent service, delicious food and a glorious atmosphere! You made our our boys feel very special and in fact you made our Easter! Thank you.
Excellent food and surroundings . Really enjoyed it.
Beautiful setting, enhanced by really friendly helpful staff.
The afternoon tea was disappointing the sandwiches where very poor quality bread fillings boring! The scones to dense and not that fresh! I reported there was no toilet paper in the cloakroom twice and hand towels had been all used!! I am sorry to say that I feel that the Lygon Arms did not meet my expectations in many ways, such a shame as it’s expensive cup of tea with very little else!!
